Ronda Rousey’s goal is still to compete in & win a Royal Rumble

May be Ronda Rousey will be sticking around the world of pro wrestling longer than we thought.

As part of her excellent series of self-produced video blogs, Rousey touched on multiple topics including her Royal Rumble opponent Sasha Banks, their tag match together this past Monday night, Bayley and a few others.

One answer from the Rousey Q & A did stand out more than all the others. For the past two Royal Rumble pay-per-views Rousey has had some form of presence. Last year she closed the show with her surprise appearance following the first ever women’s Rumble match and this year she will defend her Raw women’s title versus Banks.

So when will Rousey get to compete in a 30-woman match herself? Has she thought about it before?

“One of my dreams in the WWE, when I first came here, one of the things I really wanted to do to prove....I don’t know I just felt like I would never be able to prove to anyone that I actually knew how to wrestle. In way that wasn’t just memorized from beginning to end. Unless I ‘if I’m the first one out in the Royal Rumble then go all the way to the end and win it then nobody could say I don’t know how to wrestle’.”

Rousey would continue on what it would be to compete in a Rumble match.

“That’s something I always really wanted to do but maybe just prove that to myself as well as everybody else. Cause even I did that I still wouldn’t prove **** to a lot of ******* people. People are dicks. But to myself I think, but maybe that’s just revealing my very unrealistic expectations for myself and things I need to do.”

Rousey would go on to say later in the video “that it will be probably never happen, but I don’t know. We’ll see.”.

The answer Rousey gave is a revealing look into how she still view her critics and possibly how long she will stick around the wrestling business. In her second full year with WWE, 2019 should be an interesting year for Ronda Rousey as a pro wrestler.

Forget this year’s Royal Rumble, but is their a scenario you could see Rousey winning the 2020 Royal Rumble while at the same time becoming the iron-woman of the match?
